Various Anthologies – Liquid Sunshine



Liquid Sunshine

Have you ever wondered what comics creators do all day when they’re stuck at a convention?  Most of them don’t have a line at their desk all day long and some of them (especially when they’re at one of the big conventions where the small press people are sometimes all shoved into a far corner of the building) get very few visitors at all.  Well, sometimes they do little jam comics like this, purely for the hell of it.  This tiny comic contains all sorts of people, namely Andy Runton, J. Chris Campbell, Duane Ballenger, Chris Pitzer, Sam Henderson, Rob Ullman, Jacob Chabot, Chris Giarrusso and Justin Gammon.  If it wasn’t for the table of contents I would have no idea who drew which pages, as they mostly aren’t even using their usual drawing style.  This book doesn’t say for sure, but I’d guess that they would do a panel and pass the book along to the next person to see what they came up with, as this doesn’t follow much of a story or have much of a point.  There’s some liquid sunshine, you see, and a boy is carrying it around.  Another boy wants to steal this glass of liquid sunshine for the obvious piles of money he’ll get for it, but abruptly drops this idea to urinate in the glass instead.  It wanders around a bit more after that, but you get the general idea.  This is a great comic for those of you who are curious about what artists do in their spare time at these conventions, otherwise it’s easily skipped.  No price, but it can’t be more than $1.
